Sasaki:马萨诸塞州会议中心管理局(MCCA)与Sasaki主导的设计团队(包括人力资源顾问)合作,设计了D-a草坪,这个充满活力的城市空间马上就要落户D 大街,为居民生活带来了积极影响,也表达了新区奋发向上决心。新区位于波士顿会议展览中心(BCEC),占据了在南波士顿、创新示范区和码头的中心位置,与边界贸易站和河道中心相邻。
Sasaki: The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA), in partnership with a Sasaki-led design team (including HR&A Advisors), conceived of the Lawn on D—a flexible, vibrant, and temporary urban space—to be an early arrival on D Street, setting the tone for civic impact and expressing the ambitions of a new district. This new district, anchored by the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC), occupies a critical mid-point between South Boston, the Innovation District and Liberty Wharf, and the Fort Point and Channel Center neighborhoods.

这个新区希望能够给人们留下互动、灵活、技术先进、富于艺术感的印象,不论是居民、工人、与会者还是游客都能在此游览休憩。D草坪遵循这种设计理念,通过空间布置与规划最终把理念融合到实际项目中,D草坪将成为D街新区的心脏。
This new district aspires to be interactive, flexible, technologically advanced, inspired by art and events, and inclusive of many constituents (residents, workers, conventioneers, tourists). The Lawn on D demonstrates and pilots these ambitions, testing spatial configurations and programming that will eventually be deployed to a future event space that will become the heart and focus of the new district along D Street.

D大街草坪被认为是创新的平台,无限区规划的边界,它将2.7英亩的场地转换成功能多样的实用空间,同时也具备精湛的设计和宽广的视野。它的设计旨在最大化成本效益、保持区域灵活性以便今后转型。本项目由广场和草坪两部分组成, D草坪​​是社区活动的中心。从D大街到BCEC入口的广场通道灯火通明,闪烁的灯光圈出了聚会的最佳地点,这里明亮而又活泼,游客能通过可移动的坐凳创造自己的专属空间。在D草坪​​上,曾经伫立着一个面积为四英尺的城市建筑既阻碍视线又影响交通,现在这片区域成为BCEC建筑的前场,可以举办一些短期艺术节。D草坪是基于MCCA规模更大的城市设计和规划进行施工的。 MCCA正在规划BCEC的扩张,这将需要更多的酒店客房、停车库、零售点等配套设施,以及D大街的景观。 Sasaki和Utile,Inc.公司率领城市设计团队为D大街制定了长期的规划目标,并与周边社区合作为D大街的短期项目制定了设计指南。
The Lawn on D is conceived as a platform for innovation and an armature for infinite programming—packing multiple agendas and possibilities into 2.7 acres with skillful design and strong vision. It was designed for cost-effective implementation, flexibility, and ease of transformation. Composed of two parts—the plaza and the lawn—The Lawn on D is a hub of activity for community events. The plaza’s paths blaze trails from D Street to the side entrance of the BCEC, its signature lights describe a right-sized space for gatherings, and its bright, playful, movable furniture invites visitors to make the space their own. The lawn at The Lawn on D—sited where four feet of urban fill used to block views and preclude access—now provides a gracious forecourt to the BCEC along D Street and hosts a range of shorter-term art installations and projects. The Lawn on D grew out of a larger urban design and planning collaboration with the MCCA. The MCCA is planning a major expansion of the BCEC, which will require additional hotel rooms, parking garages, supporting retail, and, critically, a vision and identity for D Street. Sasaki and Utile, Inc. led the urban design team that laid out a long-term vision for D Street, created design guidelines for short-term projects along D Street, and engaged the surrounding community.
